Tam Warner Minton

Did you #feelthebern? If so, then you supported a political movement toward the left. You supported a man who believes in free college tuition, single payer health care, combating climate change, fighting for women's equality in pay and women's choice in their own healthcare, and raising the minimum wage to $15.00 an hour.
